Leicester City’s hopes of qualifying for the Europa League knockout round took a dent after they were held to a home draw against Spartak Moscow.

Former Chelsea winger Victor Moses gave Spartak the lead before Daniel Amartey headed in the equaliser.

Jamie Vardy had a chance to win the game from the penalty spot but a poor penalty was saved by Aleksandr Selikhov.

“Overall the players played well, created lots of chances and we missed the penalty,” Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers told BT Sport.

“We never had the killer instinct in the box to take the opportunities.

“It is not easy when there are 11 players sat in, we worked the ball into good areas, but just could not find the final ball.

“Performance-wise, we played well in the game. Did not concede so much but the goal we conceded was really poor from our perspective. We did not track runs into the box and something we have seen before.”

The result leaves Leicester a point behind second-placed Legia Warsaw in Group C but just three points separate the entire group going into the final two matches.
